City dress codes: local costume inspiration 

We sent photographer Megan Tansey Whitton and stylist Aundrea Bell out with a limited time and budget to create these last-minute DIY Halifamous costumes.

JIMMY MELVIN JR.

Hat, sweater, sweatpants and shoes from Source for Sports (5657 Spring Garden). Previously owned necklace. Fake “there is no rats in the Melvin family” rodent, $0.49 from the Salvation Army Thrift Store (5280 Green, also available at Glow Parties, 3600 Strawberry Hill). Start working now on your “five o’clock shadow.”

MAYOR PETER KELLY

Suit, shirt and tie were the model’s own. Briefcase borrowed from a friend’s dad. Plunger from the toilet. Old-school Kelly moustache from the dollar store. Don’t forget to use lots of blush for those flustered city council moments. Bonus: you get to throw candy.


ELLEN PAGE

Helmet, knee and elbow pads from a friend’s garage. Previously loved American Apparel socks (1482 Queen). Fishnets and cut-off gloves from the dollar store. Kilt from grandma’s attic. T-shirt courtesy of Rock Candy Boutique (5189 Prince). Roller skates borrowed from a friend. Go nuts with the black eyeliner and mascara for that Hurl Scout look.
